It’s not fair that you’re pregnant

...

It's not fair that you're pregnant.

That people celebrate you

You and your clever womb

Congratulations on creating new life!

The most important job in the world

Apparently.


It's not fair that you're pregnant.

That you get to spam people with scan photos and side selfies

Filling up our timelines

with updates on how you feel.

Today was a good day, you say

The sickness has gone away.


It's not fair that you're pregnant.

That you get to choose baby names

And buy cute clothes

Finding stuffed toys for their pram.

Baby shower overload

with gift snapshots for the 'gram.




It's not fair that you're pregnant.
That while I stand in painfully high stiletto heels,


You sit, in comfort

With a badge which needs no words.

A quick point to the belly

Means a commute made easier by parting herds.


It's not fair that you're pregnant.

Although I love you, I do

It's just the thing that makes it not fair

Is that I'm not pregnant too.
